A member of a schoolboy safety patrol in one of our typical cities tells the story of how children can prevent accidents by taking wise and careful traffic precautions.
"At the end of 1955 it had delivered useful traffic safety pointers to 11,823,000 young Americans in the 5th, 6th and 7th grades. Recorded showings, as noted on the records of the General Motors Film Library, exceed 75,000." [Business Screen 17:6, 1956]

A kid with an intolerable accent and a cop go over the rules of crossing the road in this film. While the kid is sometimes hard to understand and the cop less so, we do learn, through dramatized examples of what to do and what NOT to do. I never knew that women are more likely to cross in the middle of the street then men... hmm.. It would also be sort of neat to compare a similar Sid Davis film to this one, and see what matters to him vs Chevrolet.
